2001, what have we learned about investigating these sorts of incidents? and even the technology itself, as it improved significantly since then? >> it really has. and i would say on almost every front, the improvements are really significant. what we have defended against extremely effectively, is a large-scale catastrophic attack like what we saw on 9/11. and these sorts of things, our intelligence, our coordination on investigation, across agencies, between the federal and local government, are vastly better. our technology for detecting explosives and follow-up investigations, vastly better. these sorts of attacks, as tragic as it was. 3 people killed, over 100 wounded, there's still of a relatively small scale. again, it's not surprising to me that you could have an attack like this and not see information either from the fbi or overseas, that was international terrorism, indicating there might be some threat, either generally or pointed at boston. the level of professionalism and understanding of how now to investigate this and the level of coordination, is markedly better. that w
in technology from 9/11. pete william was discussing that on our show. the three terabytes of data that they say they have. that's 3 trillion bytes, the library of congress get that over several weeks. in technology circles, what they call crowd sourcing being used to try to take the communal desire to do something and to help catch whoever these perpetrators are. and yet from your experience on these issues, what can they do to speed up that process? that is an enormous amount for investigators to go through. is it not? >> it is. i think if this was just the boston police department, as good as they are, that would be an overwhelming technical matter. because we have the resources of the federal government, i think this is going to be able to be handled a lot easier than it otherwise would have been. it is just a matter of processing it. one of the good things about the age we live in, not only do people have phones that they're taking pictures. there's a the love data embedded in those pictures. time information, other sorts of information about where the mobile phone was. so there is a lot of
, as much as possible with technology and the cameras that were all around that scene. >> i think one of the authorities this morning described this as probably one of the most heavily photographed areas in the country yesterday. just because of this event going on. and they hope with so many lenses pointed and so many different directions, somebody somewhere got something that will be of investigative value. so what they'll try to do with the videos, to the extent that they can, match them up in terms of time. so that they are all registered. so the frame, as you go frame by frame, you're moving in the same time dimension. you're going a second ahead in each one at the same time of day. and then they'll try to look at still photos and try to line those up as well, hoping they can see something there that maybe people weren't aware of at the time. >> all right. pete williams, thank you very much for the latest information on the investigation. let's to go kris jansing. she is at a crime scene focused on about 12 blocks. we've just gotten confirmation of the name of one of the other pe
's hard to say. it's a technology that is of interest to terrorists who want to make their own bombs of any stripe. >> but does it look, when we think about a formal terrorist group, and the sophistication that it would use, does this lend itself to that style of sophistication? i mean, when we talk about pressure cooker bombs, it seems kind of crude. >> yes. so my guess is that this probably is a do-it-yourselfer kind of individual or individuals, perhaps a small group. either one that was inspired by al qaeda or perhaps neonazis or anti-government patriot groups who have been known to act on patriots day. so the date of the attack suggests that we not overlook the possibility that this could be an american anti-government group. although the type of bomb has most recently been attempted by american jihadists, allegedly promoting al qaeda's vision. >> it still leaves a lot of people wondering where the lead is going to come from that's going to start the investigators on the right trail to find whoever did this. our thanks to dr. jessica stern. thanks for being here. i appreciate it
